City's Silva banned 1 match, fined £50,000 over offensive Mendy tweet

The Football Association announced Wednesday that Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has been suspended for one match and fined £50,000 for a racially-offensive social media post directed at teammate Benjamin Mendy.

Silva, who compared Mendy to a black character from a Spanish confectionery company on Twitter, has also been ordered to complete face-to-face education after admitting a breach of the football governing body’s rule pertaining to social media posts.

More to come.
